Sharpen Your Eyes to See Pompeo's Evil Designs and Sinister Intentions

On January 19, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State, ignored the facts and deliberately smeared xinjiang. He published anti-China lies related to Xinjiang and grossly interfered in China's internal affairs, which is a grave violation of international law and the fundamental principles of international relations and completely exposed the immoral nature of lying and "doomsday madness" of the worst secretary of state in American history. Pompeo's political lies are not only an insult to the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang and the judgment of the people of the world and the international community, but also a challenge to moral and basic conscience. As a young scholar growing up in Xinjiang, I feel extremely indignant and dissatisfied!

Pompeo's false allegation that there is so-called "forced labor" in Xinjiang is complete nonsense. Xinjiang has always followed the spirit of the Charter of the International Labour Organization and relevant conventions and strictly implemented the Labor Law of the People's Republic of China and other laws and regulations. Besides, Xinjiang puts the establishment, operation, supervision and mediation of labor relations under the rule of law, and strictly prohibits the use of violence, threat or illegal restriction of personal freedom as means of forced labor. People of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang enjoy complete freedom of work and employment. They have the freedom of their choice of career and they can go where they want and do what they want without any restriction on their personal freedom.

Born in the 1980s in the countryside of Baicheng County, Aksu, I am a Uyghur intellectual who grew up step by step in the countryside. Like the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang, we have been growing up under the care and kindness of the Party and the government, and we have experienced the achievements of Xinjiang's development, reform and construction. I have always lived in the big multi-ethnic family of Xinjiang from childhood to adulthood, from study to work and from family to friends. Over the years of our work and life, we have helped each other as brothers and forged a deep bond of friendship. We have witnessed the great changes in the history of Xinjiang and felt the warm care of the Party and the state. Xinjiang has always been fully implementing the system of regional ethnic autonomy and legally protecting the rights of the people of all ethnic groups to participate in the administration of state affairs on an equal footing and to independently manage the affairs of their respective regions and ethnic groups, and enjoying full or even superior basic rights to subsistence and development in education, medical care, culture and other areas of people's livelihood.

Those who have experienced it have the most to say. Like other Uygur people, I have enjoyed equal protection in school, work and medical treatment since childhood. And with the prosperity and development of our country, we enjoy better and better welfare. And now, children in four prefectures in southern Xinjiang enjoy free compulsory education from kindergarten three years to high school. I was born in a remote mountain area which was 80 kilometers from the county town and 30 kilometers from the township government. I grew up in a poor family. Because of the free education of the state, I went through primary and secondary school successfully. In 2006, I was admitted to Xinjiang Agricultural University and completed my undergraduate studies with the aid of the National Grant for Poor Students. In July 2011, I was admitted to my alma mater as a postgraduate. In September 2013, I went to work at the Party School of the CPC Committee of the Autonomous Region. In 2017, with the support of the policies on personnel training for ethnic groups in Xinjiang, I studied for a doctoral degree. Because of the development of education and the policy of cultivating minority students in Xinjiang, I completed my master's and doctor's studies for free.

Under the policy support of the Party and the state, I have been able to grow up and learn cultural knowledge. Knowledge has not only changed my mind and broadened my vision, but also changed my destiny, so that I can distinguish right from wrong. I am truly grateful to the Communist Party of China and the great motherland. I strongly condemn and firmly oppose Pompeo's malicious slander of China's governance policies in Xinjiang. The good situation of stability, peace and prosperity in Xinjiang is hard-won. Therefore, the people of all ethnic groups will cherish this wonderful situation all the more, and will never allow anyone or any force to interfere wantonly.
